Standards in action: Tribal language preservation and revitalization (1302.26)


The Tribal Language and Culture Committee developed a tribal-wide action plan to intentionally preserve their tribal language and to grow the number of young, fluent, native speakers in the community. As part of this plan, each Tribal Department developed action steps to support this goal. To create Sunshine Head Start Program’s action steps, Sally convened a sub-committee comprised of policy council members, parents, staff, a tribal language expert from a nearby college, and interested fluent-speaking community members, including elders. Together, they created a plan to submit to the Tribal Language and Culture Committee that would support the goal of preserving and revitalizing the tribal language. (author abstract)
